University of Bologna (UniBo): Partner 37

University of BolognaThe University of Bologna has a long history of research in the domain of hydrologic modelling and real time flood forecasting: the team lead by Prof. Todini has co-ordinated the EU funded AFORISM (A comprehensive FOrecasting system for flood RISk Mitigation and control) project aimed at developing an integrated prototype of real-time flood forecasting system and participated in the EU funded TELFLOOD (Forecasting Floods in Urban Areas Downstream of Steep Catchments) and PRIMAVERA (Previsione Regionale Idro-Meteorologica Accoppiata per la Valutazione delle Emergenze e del Rischio di Alluvione) two projects aiming at studying the possibility of using LAM forecasts in order to extend the forecasting lead time.

At present the Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra e Geologico Ambientali (DISTGA) of the University of Bologna is coordinating project MUSIC funded by the EU within the V Framework Program and is participating in the ACTIV cluster. In addition, DISTGA participated in the SUPREME project funded by the Italian Ministry of University and Scientific and Technological Research, aimed at developing a DSS for the delineation of flood risk maps and the real time management of flood emergencies, and to the EFFS project funded by the EU within the V Framework Program.

The DISTGA is currently carrying on the following research themes: (1) Rainfall-runoff models (spatially-distributed, lumped); (2) Real-time flood forecasting systems and forecasting uncertainty; (3) River flow routing and floodplain inundation modelling; and (4) Link between meteorological and hydrological models.
